Police constable Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) is sent off to the hamlet of Sleepy Hollow to investigate a series of murders where the victims' heads are missing. The residents of Sleepy Hollow claim that the murderer is the Headless Horseman, which Crane doesn't believe.
Sleepy Hollow was the third collaboration between Tim Burton and Johnny Depp (the first two were Edward Scissorhands and Ed Wood). This wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. Much like Sweeney Todd, the on-screen deaths are quite graphic. Definitely not for the squeamish.
My Rating: ****
